This workshop helps you refine your improv knowledge and focuses on performance skills. You use the tools you developed in Foundation 1 as you learn more games and explore your own style of play.

Students in Foundation 2 are required to read one of the definitive texts on improv: IMPRO by Keith Johnstone. Johnstone invented Theatresports, the main improv format we play at BATS.

If so, you can pay for it at time of registration and pick up their book on your first day of class.
At the conclusion, everyone "passes" and can move on to Foundation 3, but you can also take Foundation 2 as many times as you would like and can continue to work on your performance skills. (And since each session is different, it's likely that you'll get a whole new take on the experience from a new teacher and new classmates.)
